Ben Collins, better known as The Stig from BBC's internationally acclaimed Top Gear, was the benchmark of speed against which hundreds of celebrities set themselves, and the man that everyone - including Formula One stars Nigel Mansell and Jenson Button - tried and failed to beat. He is also the go-to guy for Hollywood car chases (driving as Bond in Skyfall, and for Batman in The Dark Knight Rises), and has raced successfully in almost every class imaginable, from Touring Cars and Le Mans 24 Hour to the American Stock Car circuit.

Heartening to see CAD technology in the hands of such young students being harnessed so effectively to produce these aerodynamically efficient "mini" F1 cars - one team even beat McLaren F1 Team's entry. Having worried that new tech might alienate human connections these teams proved otherwise and their presentation skills were exceptional - thank you for a very inspiring day @f1inschoolshq @f1inschoolsuk @fnepr

Slow motion of the intensity on the start line @f1inschoolshq @f1inschoolsuk - these guys worked out their reaction times are faster doing star jumps before the start sequence
You know it's serious competition when the superglue comes out on the start line @f1inschools
